Ryan Mark (born Ryan Reynolds, March 20 1985, Kingston, Jamaica), is a Jamaican reggae gospel musician. He is a Christian and is known for his strong messages of repentance, holiness and love for God, that is a refreshing change to the everyday dancehall culture for which Jamaica is well-known.
Ryan's career started in 1999 while attending Calabar High School, in Kingston Jamaica. Ryan and his friends visited a church crusade with the intention of checking out girls. However, the Lord had different plans for his life. As a result of visiting the church crusade, he was captivated by the message and surrendered his life to Christ, one week after his eldest brother Howard, now known as Goddy Goddy. Ryan Mark started out his ministry by singing background vocals for his brother, then moved on to doing his own work with Prodigal Son, who produced his first two songs, namely, Decision and Feel Yu Got It Made, which were both featured on a compilation CD titled Recharge.
In 2003, Ryan Mark was ranked one of the top eight gospel deejays in Jamaica by the Love Herald. He later moved on to record songs for well-known producer Danny Brownie, who produced his debut album, The Chosen Prodigy, in July 2005. The album was released in the same year. It comprises twelve electrifying tracks that present the gospel of Jesus Christ in a radical way.
Ryan Mark continues to be an inspiration to the youth of Jamaica and wherever else in the world he is called to minister.
He recently released his second album titled The Tabernacle.
Ryan Mark has made appearances on some of Jamaicas biggest gospels shows, such as Fun in the Son, Recharge, Genesis, Project 150 and many more. More recently, he has performed on shows such as, St. Maartens Summer Fest and Decisions 2006 Gospel concert in Turks & Caicos.
